A lot happens foot-wise during the driving of an Australian racing car:
• Those micro-second clutch applications indicate up-shifts, obviously.
• “Heel and toe” braking – you’ll see in the clip that the driver hits the brakes and accelerator simultaneously during down-changes – raises engine speed to road speed; otherwise rear wheels seize, leading to a “hello, trees!” race exit.
• Note the (unidentified) driver’s right foot squirming for further purchase on the accelerator even when the thing is jammed completely to the firewall. Six hundred horsepower, and the guy wants more.
• Brief left-foot brake taps probably mean we’re looking at footage from an endurance race, during which tired brakes sometimes require a pressure-building nudge.
